An investigation is currenting being conducted into Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office involving a 29-year-old woman who was found unresponsive in the county jail, according to WEAU News. The Sheriff’s office has released the woman’s identity as Silver O. Jenkins, who was listed as homeless, QWOW reported.

A Twitter video allegedly shows footage of a triangular, white UFO rotating in the sky in Eau Claire. The video is accompanied by a robotic voice and eerie music.

“Seen here rotating and silently gliding by, this huge triangular-shaped UFO is remarkable,” the voice over says. “Is this vessel otherworldly, or could it be a secret government craft? Whatever it is is massive in size and was completely silent, even though both witnesses said they felt a vibrating sensation in their chest.”

“This #UFO/#UAP video of a #TR3B was filmed in Eau Claire, Wisconsin,” the post’s caption reads.

This is not a genuine video, however. The footage was debunked in a YouTube video from November 2014 by an account called UFO Theater, a channel that focuses on debunking UFO hoaxes. Likewise, there are no credible news reports about a UFO sighting in Eau Claire. (RELATED: Does This Video Show A UFO In Poland?)
